Victor is the manager of the Sodor Steam Works where he scurries all over the place, finding parts, delivering, collecting and supervising. He has a heart of gold, has a good sense of humor and is a respected manager who doesn't suffer fools - especially the Diesels.
About this creation
Victor, the mamager of the Sodor Steamworks is working with Kevin while searching for parts if any engine has a problem. He is introduced in Hero of the Rails and onwards in the specials and TV Series of Thomas and Friends.
Victor is in the LDD Rendering. He was not alike as my model, but I'm the only one making this. He usually doesn't have the hazard stripes or his names on the tanks.
There were hazard stripes on the side of the tank, and name plates on, too. I used in Google Images and saved the yellow and black image and printed out. I used white sheet of paper and glued them on the 4 wide brick plate.
There were two resemblences of Thomas and Victor. Thomas has the stumpy tank, boiler, dome and the funnel. He wears a number 1. Victor does not have the stumpy tank, boiler, dome and the funnel. He wears a name plate.
The face I printed out is Victor. I got it from TTTE wikia and printed one and cutted out and glued on the firebox. His number on top is JC-3218-A. He evenly got a headlamp.
The whistle where it should be is his top dome.
His black and yellow hazard stripes are completely glued on the back of his cab. The windows are 6wide.
This is the picture of Victor in the movie "Hero of the Rails." He is based on CGI. I saved it from the website TTTE Wikia.
The prototype of Victor is the Baldwin Locomotive Works and is based on 1173, an 0-4-0ST-T locomotive that worked on sugar plantations in Cuba. As the Sodor Steamworks is based on high profile locomotive works (such as Crewe and Darlington), Victor is based on the narrow gauge locomotives who lived there delivering parts to different departments.
